    SISTER DOUBLE HAPPINESS were a post-Punk Blues Rock band formed in 1986 in San Francisco. They released four studio albums, an EP, and a live album across their nine-year existence.
    Its core members were Gary Floyd and Lynn Perko, who were in the seminal Punk band THE DICKS.
    Sister Double Happiness' music was bluesier than that of the Dicks, and lyrically they were generally more personal in tone than the politically radical style of their earlier band; however, Floyd and Perko's leftist lyrics and punk influences were not entirely gone.
    Debuting in 1988 with a self-titled album on former BLACK FLAG guitarist Greg Ginn's SST Records, the band spent much of the next few years touring, building up a loyal grass roots following with their emotive Bluesy Alternative Rock.
    However, they also split up for a period during this time, with Floyd taking a sabbatical from the band to pursue his interest in Eastern philosophy and spirituality.
    With the focus back on the music, 1991 saw the band sign to major label Reprise Records, and release the "Heart & Mind" album, which in turn led to more bouts of heavy touring, both as a headliner and support act.
    A switch to Warner Chappel and the expansion of the band to a quintet occured before the release of their third (and best) album, "Uncut" in 1993.
    Later the same year, a four song self-titled EP was issued by Seattle's Sub Pop Records, featuring two "Uncut" tracks and two new recordings.
    Issuing album No 4, "Horsey Water" for Sub Pop in 1994, the band gradually began to crumble in the wake of the records release, as the years of fruitless struggle took their toll on interpersonal relationships in the groups ranks.
    After the dissolution of Sister Double Happiness in 1995, Floyd formed and primarily played in Europe with the blues group THE GARY FLOYD BAND; a compilation of this material, "Backdoor Preacher Man", is now available.
    Floyd and Sister Double Happiness guitarist Danny Roman also earlier played in BLACK KALI MA, a blues-punk act that recorded an LP entitled "You Ride The Pony (I'll Be The Bunny)" for Alternative Tentacles in 1999.
    Gary Floyd is now in a band called THE BUDDHA BROTHERS, and has also recorded solo as a country musician and collaborated with San Fransiscan Psychedelic Rock act MUSHROOM.
    Perko went on to become a member of indie rock band IMPERIAL TEEN in 1996, who have released five albums to date. Perko also appeared on Black Kali Ma's lone album.
    Guitarist Ben Cohen returned to his native France and became more interested in electronic and dance music post-SDH, recording with THE PARTY & STARDUST, and guesting alongside DAFT PUNK.
    Under the alias of BENJAMIN DIAMOND he has released five albums of Dance/Electro music.
    Bassist Jeff Palmer went on to join Psychedelic Pop band MOMMYHEADS, recording four albums with them, and also joined the reformed SUNNY DAY REAL ESTATE.
    His replacement in SDH, Miles Montalbano, had also played in BLACK KALI MA and later recorded with JONATHAN RICHMAN. He's now a respected indie film maker, best known for his movie, "Revolution Summer"
    A posthumous Sister Double Happiness album, "A Stone's Throw from Love (Live and Acoustic at the Great American Music Hall 06/17/92)", was released in 1999 by Innerstate Records.

    You're very welcome bestialclitoris.
    I suppose some people wouldn't see it that way, but i always thought of Sister Double Happiness as a Hard Rock band, espescially when they go balls out and Gary sings full throttle in an almost Danzig style.
    You mention that you have all the Gary Floyd stuff, does that include the elusive "Horsey Water"?
    If so, is there any chance that you could upload it here?
    (cheers)
